Marty sure is pissed with me
August 31, 2006
Marty “Bilbo” Donovan made it clear during the WSRE debate that he doesn’t like me or the Independent News. Forever the victim – Bilbo was upset the Independent News had never called him on the Vince Whibbs, Sr., Community Maritime Park.
Well, Bilbo, why should we? We haven’t called any of the council members. We’ve read the public documents. We’ve attended your council meetings. We’ve listen to your rantings on WCOA and your BLAB show. Why should we call you? You ain’t that important.
Bilbo Donovan is a bully. We’ve caught him in his lies (Outtakes) and he doesn’t like it. He is accustom to saying whatever he wants and no one challenging him – not his fellow councilmen, the media or any one.
Tonight he said we called him a Nazi. We never did. A blog commentor did question the SOC choice of music for their BLAB show. Here is the exact post on Aug 21:
“The first and last time I watched the propaganda being dispensed on the SOC show, I was also struck by their choice of theme music. Wagner’s music was a favorite of Adolf Hitler. Much has been written about the influence Wagner’s music had on Hitler and the development of his nazi philosophy. It is an appropriate musical theme to instill fear and malign those you oppose.”
Message to Bilbo Donovan: Bigger and more important men than you have attacked me. I stand behind what I’ve written on the CMP.
In journalism, we earn gold stars for being attacked when we report the truth. You dodged the question from our editor, Duwayne Escobedo, tonight and instead went after me. You helped my reputation and that of this paper more than you realize.
PS Nobody likes a bully.
PSPS If you’re worried about Hitler references, shave the mustache.
